After Taormina, iconic ribbon installation dazzles Palermo
PALERMO, Sicily -- Two months after creating a glittering sensation at the Taormina film festival, a street installation of metallised gold and silver ribbons has been shown to the public on the facade of the famed Palazzo Ganci di Valguarnera in the Sicilian capital as part of the revived Palermo Jazz festival.
The installation deploying as many as 130,000 ribbons, designed by leading Palermo architect Laura Galvano, originally stretched 800 meters across the Corso Umberto in Taormina for the film festival. "The artifice is aimed at being auspicious for the return to normality, after the hard blow inflicted by the pandemic on all of humanity," Arch. Galvano said then.
